Comments:Marcus Alden Meredith said:

Transcriptions for select Bach works by Leopold Stokowski including works heard in film such as the first Fantasia by Disney. Though other composers and conductors transcribed Bach works, Stokowski has the largest selection of transcriptions of Bachs's works to his credit.
